The way we work

Our professional activities exclusively focus on our clients’ success. We do not offer general solutions for everybody but rather tailored solutions for each of our clients’ specific needs. We will not settle for 80 or 90 per cent but will keep digging until we have discovered and exploited the last argument to win our case. We work at rates which perfectly reflect the target-oriented approach and quality of a highly specialized law boutique. Our lean organization allows us to work most efficiently in our respective areas of specialization which, in turn, creates monetary benefits which we are happy to pass on to our partners.


We enjoy providing assistance to legal departments and in-house counsels who value our expertise in industrial property rights, and our experience also includes consultancy services to small businesses, sole proprietors and freelancers without their own legal departments. We are proud of our references.

Contact us

Feel free to contact us by sending us an e-mail or calling us at any time. We are looking forward to helping you with any issues relating to trademark, copyright, design, license, distribution and competition law.
